The X amount of Sub = X amount of "insert DOC" is sort of misleading. Suboxone is a very potent drug, however the difference between a full agonist and partial agonist (Sub) makes the effect different. Suboxone is nowhere near as mentally addicting, I am not sure if it is as physically addicting either.

But holy heck did I have some morning anxiety today. It happened once last month as well, I'd figure this is just to body adjusting. It really stunk though and it was hard to calm myself down. I take Seroquel for sleep (thinking about switching) and I was groggy and half asleep but still had negative racing thoughts. Went away in about 45 minutes.

stephent, your right, you can't compare suboxone to narcotic pain meds. mg. to mg., they are not the same.

You guys are correct in that there really is no perfect comparison between Suboxone and Lortab. We were simply trying to illustrate that Sherry was started out on too high a dose of Suboxone and that even her 4mg dose of Suboxone was pretty high for a 10mg/day habit of Lortab.

When I said, "2mg of Suboxone would be equal to approximately 40mg of Hydrocodone (Lortab)" I was trying to get her in the ballpark as to where she was at with Suboxone, that's why I said approximately.
